Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 cups chopped onions
  • Salt and cayenne
  • 2 pounds of ground venison
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • Crushed red pepper
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic
  • 3 cups crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup tomato paste
  • 3 cups beef stock
  • 2 tablespoons masa flour
  • 1 1/2 pounds shoestring potatoes
  • 1/2 pound grated Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 pound grated Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup pickled jalapenos

Directions

Preheat the fryer. In a large saucepan, heat the vegetable oil. When the oil is hot, add the onions and saute for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the vegetables start to wilt. Season with salt and cayenne. Stir in the venison , chili powder, cumin, crushed red pepper, and oregano. Brown the meat for 5 to 6 minutes. Stir in the garlic, tomatoes, tomato paste, and 2 1/2 cups beef stock. Bring the liquid up to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Simmer the liquid, uncovered for 1 hour, stirring occasionally, or until the venison is tender. Skim off the fat occasionally. Mix the masa and remaining stock together. Slowly stir in the masa slurry and continue to cook for 30 minutes. Reseason with salt and cayenne. Fry the shoestring potatoes in batches until golden brown, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the shoestrings from the oil and drain on a paper-lined plate. Season the fries with salt and pepper. Cover the bottom of a large, glass rectangular pan with the shoestrings. Sprinkle 3 cups of the two cheeses over the fries. Place the fries in the oven and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, just until the cheese melts. Remove the pan from the oven and spoon the chili over the top of the fries. Garnish with the remaining cheese, sour cream and jalapenos.
